How cool is that.  Those are pretty rare, especially one in good condition.  Keep us posted.

It will get a more or less stock color repaint by next riding season, as well as a lot of cosmetic spiffing up. I was dealing on a black '76 at a dealership in Ohio, but I didn't consider it's claimed low, original, mileage of 2,700 miles as a positive thing...not for a 46 year old bike that hadn't been rebuilt.

The blue '76 in Kansas City has had a complete engine rebuild from the crank up, new seals and main bearings, new pistons, etc. and is claimed to be a great running example of this old Suzuki. It also doesn't hurt one bit that I can buy it for $1,300 less than the black one at the Ohio dealership.

As I said, it will need a repaint of the tank and two sidecovers, but that's an easy thing to have done...

Pretty sure I looked at that black '76 about 6 weeks ago. Just outside of Dayton. Shop had several vary nice old Suzuki's. Price's were pretty steep I thought.
If you do the repaint, as nice as that bike looks it deserves the closest color match to original as possible.

I hope it makes you happy.

I hope it makes you happy.

Love my old bikes! But maybe its because I'm getting old?!?!?  My newest one I ride is 18 years old next season & the PC will turn 31 next season & has yet to hit 30.000 miles

Yes, I had a blue '74 that I had purchased from my brother in St. Paul. I had it about a year, then became frustrated with it and ended up selling it to a gentleman in Australia, who almost immediately overhauled the engine due to bad crank seals. I had contacted him only a month or so ago, and he still has it.

This one will be my sixth GT750 since my first one in 1974.

I have arranged to pick it up near Kansas City next weekend.
